    Paste into Terminal:
    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.dock no-glass -boolean NO

    You have to type the whole thing ... copy and paste.

    I forgot to add this: after the command prompt returns type:

    Code:
    killall dock

    Sounds like a dock changing app, you'll need to open it, undo whatever change you made with it and the dock should be back to normal.

    Is Palette an app? If it is, then just delete the app.

    Hm... either search around for some Terminal commands to search for absolutely ANYTHING that has that name in it. Otherwise, Archive and Install.

    It is an app. I've Googled it.

    You've installed the demo, and apparently uninstalled it some time ago.

    If the original dock files have been deleted, no app can help you.

    Could just be a wonky file somewhere. Try an Archive and Install:
